Exploring Norway’s breathtakingly magnificent countryside and coastal areas is one of the main reasons so many tourists are drawn to the country. But, what makes Norway such a great place for adventure is the level of access tourists have to the country. Due to the ‘right of public access’ (‘Allemannsretten’), or ‘Freedom to roam’ (as it is otherwise known), it is free for anyone to walk, cycle, ski or camp on any land in the country (with the exception of private gardens/land in close proximity to resident properties). Because of this right, you are free to explore the country freely and peacefully, as long as you pick up your rubbish and show respect for nature. Norway is home to nearly 1,200 fjords – long, deep and narrow bodies of water that form in valleys between cliffs and mountains. These stunning natural wonders are best found along the west coast of the country and can be observed from the mainland, or via boat.
If you’re interested in natural wonderment, you’d have already read about the celestial ballet of green, violet and pink lights of the North. If you’ve never seen them, then Tromso in the winter months may be the perfect place for you. Sitting a few hundred miles inside the Arctic Circle, this small, yet surprising bustling, town is the perfect snowy destination for those looking to observe the light show.
